Welcome home Ilhan’: Huge crowd meets congresswoman Omar at Minnesota airport after Trump ‘send her back’ row

Ilhan Omar was greeted with cheers and “welcome home Ilhan” chants when she flew into her home state of Minnesota – a sharp contrast to the “send her back” shouts aimed at her at Donald Trump’s latest rally.

Dozens of supporters greeted her at Minneapolis airport following an extraordinary week in which the president targeted her and three other Democratic congresswomen of colour in his now-notorious “go back” tweets.

Ms Omar also received a standing ovation at an event on healthcare in Minneapolis on Thursday night, telling the packed crowd: “I know there are a lot of people that are trying to distract us now. But I want you all to know that we are not going to let them.”
